Nissan GT-R Driver Hangs on After 200 MPH Tire Blowout
This GT-R driver was lucky enough to tell the tale of what to do in the event of a high speed blowout, after his Nissan GT-R – modified to deliver 800 horsepower thanks to the twin-turbo engine being bored and stroked to 4.3 liters – blew a tire while travelling at 203 mph. At the 25-second mark, the right front tire loses pressure, disintegrating and sending shrapnel into the HID headlights and destroying the front quarter panel.
The next 30 seconds is a lesson in how to bring a car to a stop safely, lifting off the throttle, gently applying the brakes, and holding the car steady. Remember this lesson and stay calm if this happens to you.
